CSM Foundation Hosts Platinum Anniversary Golf Classic

The College of Southern Maryland’s Foundation Golf Tournament will celebrate its 20th year with the Platinum Anniversary Golf Classic Aug. 18 at Swan Point Yacht & Country Club, Issue.

For more than 20 years the tournament has grown to become a signature event for CSM, raising more than $500,000 for students and programs offered at the college. The goal this year is to raise $50,000 for CSM athletic scholarships and programs. Joe O’Neill, of Raley, Watts & O’Neill Insurance and Financial Services, serves as this year’s Golf Committee chair and the Honorable Murray Levy serves as Honorary Committee chair.

The tournament will begin with breakfast sponsored by Chick-fil-A beginning at 7:30 a.m. and followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Lunch will be provided by WaWa along with a reception including prizes after the tournament concludes. 

For the 10th year, Marrick Homes is the Grand Tournament Sponsor for the event. “The CSM Foundation is fortunate to have many partners, friends and supporters; however, long-time partners such as Marrick Homes are a rare find,” said Michelle Goodwin, CSM vice president of advancement. “We are grateful that Marrick has supported CSM students and programs for more than a decade. They truly understand the impact CSM has on the local workforce and the community that they care so much about.”

Other sponsorships include Raley, Watts & O’Neill Insurance and Financial Services and Community Bank of Tri-County hosting $10,000 putting contests and Ken Dixon Automotive and All American Harley-Davidson hosting hole-in-one contests. Additional sponsors include Buddy Sprague, Quality Built Homes, Inc., GenOn Mid-Atlantic LLC and SMECO. Beverages will be provided to attendees throughout the day by Royalle Services, Inc.

Sponsorships and registration are available for the Platinum Anniversary Golf Classic. The CSM golf team, who recently competed at the 2011 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II men’s national golf tournament, will also be taking part in the Golf Classic.
